Respect and Responsibility

The Football Victoria Respect and Responsibility program was developed to help the whole football community understand everyone’s role in promoting and supporting the game of football, and help clubs provide an effective avenue for keeping their members better informed and educated on matters relating to their responsibilities.

We often hear that “the referee failed to control the game” and escalating events lead to heavy fines and suspensions. When we look at the Referees, Football Victoria and Clubs, to look at Football as a community and their responsibilities and where each fit within the game.

The outcome of this presentation provides a well organised, independently administered and community inclusive game, where matches are decided on merit and skill, and enjoyed by its players and clubs, while reducing substantial fines, suspensions, dissent and discrimination to create a fair and enjoyable game for the whole of the football community.
